“To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness. What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places – and there are so many – where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act . . . “
Howard Zinn, quoted in Ecology Action Newsletter, August, 2011

Our country is melting down. The planet is on fire with change. When I first wrote this, it was Independence Day, a new moon, July 4, 2016. The latest killings had not yet happened.
